Nope, there's nothing intensely creepy about this Teen Vogue photoshoot. I'm not scared that Dakota Fanning is somehow a real female version of The Omen kid. I'm not going to lay awake at night when I think of the implosion that will occur when she turns 18 and is allowed to make her own decisions which, try as she might, will most certainly not be healthy and odds are will involve drugs. Not at all. Shiver.

I do think, however, she's a contender to win my Dead Eye Off (which I am totally planning, BTW).

Actually, the red dress photo looks like one half of the twin girls from the Shining. I can just hear her saying 'Come and play with us Danny' in her best britsh accent.

Oh dear God in Heaven, I'm never going to sleep again.

And yeah, the red dress one does look just like the Shining girls.

Dakota might have a chance at remaining normal if it wasn't for her mother. She actually allowed this 12-year-old child to star in the movie Hounddog (that just finished production in July 2006) about a child who is raped - yes, there is a very graphic rape scene - and spends a lot of time onscreen in just her panties. The scenes were so disturbing, several backers pulled their money out of the project, leaving Deborah Kampmeier
scrambling for money to complete the film. The reason Dakota's mother let her do this VERY disturbing movie at only 12 years old? Deborah Kampmeier told her mother it was a guaranteed way for Dakota to win an Oscar. Talk about whoringout/selling your child! This is like Teri Shields with Brooke Shields all over again but, believe me, much worse. Her mother even talked about how "well" Dakota handled the very disturbing, graphic rape scene. Now I ask you...what kind of mother does something like that to her daughter? North Carolina officials (the movie was filmed in Wilmington) are looking for a way to prosecute her mother. Since Dakota wasn't literally raped, her mother cannot be charged with a rape-related crime; however, it IS being looked into about bringing charges against her mother for child exploitation and child endangerment, and a few other charges. This kinds of thing in Hollywood makes me sick!

Sorry, typo: This kind of thing in Hollywood makes me sick! I won't be spending a cent to watch this movie! I'm horrified by it. She is an awesome little actress, but how is she ever going to live a "normal" life with no issues when she's forced into roles such as this?

I think she is a freaky robot from the year 2525. In interviews she is so overpoised it is scary. She is like a little Jon Benet but with style, and talent. I must say the girl can act butwhen does she shut it off? She freaks me out especially on Letterman he can't even crack the robot's waxed poise and canned answers. She has been molded into a perfect little childbot. She's a Small Wonder remember Vicky on that 80's show Small Wonder...

Sweet Jesus, is that for real? That Dakota Fanning rape movie thing? That makes me positively SICK -- in my opinion, the mother should be prosecuted somehow... that just seems so wrong. I don't know. I did think it was weird she let Dakota do the narration for the documentary film -- "In the Realms of the Unreal" about outsider artist Henry Darger (infamous for his beautiful renderings of grotesquely murdered naked girl-children). I grew up with the same kind of arty "anything goes" bohemian-type parents, and I'm all fucked up -- but maybe she'll be alright. I hope so. Damn!

Brooke Shields was in Pretty Baby and she turned out ok, right?

Ha ha, I know. I keed.

I imagine her mother telling her during the shooting "It's okay Brooke Honey. The Director is French"
